Episode 4658



Dark rings under her eyes, nausea, the shakes and itchy skin, not to mention longing glances at the pub and nearest off licence: it’s pretty clear that Lauren is an alcoholic. Yet dad Max is adamant she’s just coming down with a virus and will be fine. Come on, Max, wake up and smell the coffee ... or rather the empty booze bottles.

Meanwhile, Bianca gives Carol the letter written by David Wicks that Ian found in a box in Derek’s old lock-up. Carol is fairly dismissive about what David says, but Bianca’s pretty certain a scribbled phone number tucked away in the box will help her find him. Bad idea, Bianca.


As Lauren wakes up at Max's with yet another hangover, Kirsty finally gets through to her husband about his daughter's alcoholism. Bianca hands Carol the letter given to her by Peter Beale, giving them hope they might be able to find David Wicks. However, when they ask Ian why he had the document in the first place, he is forced to show them Derek's box - prompting Bianca to make a phone call she may live to regret. Ava is secretly hurt when Sam tells her he will be leaving Walford soon.
